I capture her eyes,
locked in mine,
reading the message
in each of her tears,
each one with
scalloped edges,
worn, torn
written in a book
of pain,
pages bleeding
from a broken heart!

tender feelings flow
gather you in my arms
hold you in my heart
as the storm rages

letting tears flow
rolling down soft skin
dripping on the floor
as the rain pours

here by the fire
we stay dry and warm
loving each other
as the wind blows

stormy weather
always an invitation
to gather with friends
who beckon

Hiya D....my sentiments exactly!

I awoke to a clatter,
of feathering natter,
and quickly my eyes did see,
the snow all around,
becoming a mound,
and birds all hudled in the tree.

Across the way,
the children at play,
with snowmen all in a row,
there's Brawny and Ticket,
and Trapped near the thicket,
and Late
with Cowboy in tow!

Those jolly white fellas,
with canes and umbrellas,
appeared to come to life,
when the girls came out,
and with a shout,
"I think we should
build them a wife!"

^^
manny, your poem's great
to include those boys who moderate
plus it reminds me of a few years ago
when my son was still quite young
and had a great imagination....

he and I did something 'new'
we built not only a snowman
but built him a snow-woman too!

now she wasn't exactly a work of art
but you could definitely tell them apart
built right there for my parents to see
under their japanese maple tree!

perhaps this year we could repeat this trick
for now my son's older
we might make her more realistic! :)

Anatomically correct??

Now wouldn't that catch the attention of passersby!
catch the five oclock news
for accident reports,
five car pileup
near the site of
Mr and Mrs Frosty,
parading in their birthday suits!

Russian Brides

Russian brides

for under my tree,
now I wait
for them to arrive!

Hey Froggy...that must have been quite a sight! I love it..

Thou hast sealed thy fate,
by deaths blow of righteousness
shall light reveal thee,
as flowers bloom and wilt,
so shall suns rise and set,
yet,
not upon thee,
disgraced reverence
hastens the sword of justice,
swift ye depart
by angers tree,
find ye peace in darkness,
for that is the color
of your soul!!

Ahhhhhhh...refuge! [whew]
Supper is on,
the fire is lit, glowing low,
tis here that I stretch my vision,
resting my eyes, yet the
third one searches, knowing
what is to come, protecting my inner being,
and when the time is right,
beckons my spirit
to wake,
and know
this moment!

Thunder

From the peak of the mountain
I summoned it's power,
"Come to me, O great thunder!"
and the thunder responded,
arriving in great chariots.

"I beseech thee, enter my spirit,
sooth me", and thunder entered my kingdom
of flesh, calming me in that moment,
yet thunder seemed lonely, as if,
missing something, so, once again
I summoned thunder speaking thus:

"O great thunder, you have freely given,
now you must find that part of you
that is missing! Go now, and find your lightning,
for, without her you are incomplete!!"

The great thunder rose to the heavens,
and there, joined his love, and O
what music I heard, the roaring lights
smiled, kissing my soul
forever!

thunder without lightening is like
mountain without snow
like rivers with no waters
streams have no place to flow

like a new year with no fireworks
cold face without the glow
like a fire without the crackling
and a dance without the show

like a gun without the bullit
the passion with no soul
like love without the romance
like a fight without a goal

thunder without lightening
is like life without the bang
so lets all keep those clouds a moving
cause also without thunder
lightening aint worth a dam

Hasten night,
that I might gaze upon
stars distant love,
forlorn of absence,
I long for sight
of thy vision once more,
Too long the river
divides,
two hearts longing touch,
time grows impatient
in castle cold,
ravens shiver
where warmth has departed,
that fortnight shall pass,
and stars will light
thy way home,
once again to be, alone,
in my arms,
our lips, our eyes,
our souls,
united again,
and the minstrels
shall sing of our love.

forever!

bringing this one home from "Sounds of Blue".

When I was just a young lad,
Oh...say...older than three,
love was all an adult thing,
that fascinated me.

I remember well the YUCK phase,
whenever girls came round,
I'd find a place where I could hide,
and never make a sound.

The first kiss came at age of nine,
and Wilma was her name,
since that day, I'm not quite sure,
but I've never been the same!!

Child of the Not Very Merry

Christmas creeps on jingle-bell feet
tinkling all over the morning paper;
middle-class wolves scratch at my mood,
howl to feed their homeless pups.

I've got cabin fever and a howl rising in me!

I want a red party dress, matching lingerie;
I want to be arm candy and kiss Santa
with sweet fire, under the mistletoe bough.

I've a list for him...but
those feral, street children haunt me,
pierced-weathered-splintered-shards
of rock-a-by eyes, freezing
the butterfly in me .

Shallow, the greed of my needs
reeking of self indulgent whimsy.

I'm ashamed and seek to make amends;
give something to God's family
trying to live under the overpass,
in the dead ivory of winter.




Merry Christmas Manny and all who shelter by this warm fire...

Desires brush, dipped in red,
painting in splendor's liquid dreams,
dripping trails across the seams
of molten lead.

Acrylic visions, dipped in blue,
sight lines blurred, of pastoral scene,
clinging grasp of mental screen,
images of you!

I'm still fighting it Manny. Maybe it'll work better after the new year.

Everyone wants to update this or that ... stressed the poor thing out. LOL!! Please talk with *Santa* for me he needs to bring his instrument tech with him. I'm afraid I got mad and deleted a few things I think I needed! oopsy!

There are many
svelte ones,
shinny ones
fat ones...
They all jingle
jangle
a the hip of
the one who wears
them...

There is no
solitude here
Noise comes and goes
Like the waves
of the ocean...

Suddenly
the electric chirping
makes those seaking
quiet...jump...

the cinder blocks
and cold
reminds the writer
where she is...
When the mind
wanders...

The wall of steel
mortifies the soul
Without it;
This could be anywhere...
Some women having fun.

But late at night;
that final clang...
And the last
turn of the key...
Will make the
writer cry.

oh....a whisp passed through...or two....
leaving words of depth and pleas with you
speaking of eyes and hearts caught in sorrow
or asking santa to bring a new laptop
....perhaps tomorrow....
feeling some sadness
for things from the past
for people who used to be here
who's words now rarely pass
though part of me knows things just don't last
yet there's a timelessness in each post left
written with humbling expressiveness
as if the soul never grows old
if the heart doesn't turn cold
for if we can listen with an open ear
just open a page any day to read or play
if we wish to fill or feel an emptiness
or to laugh with another's happiness
we can gratefully find it all here
to cry and to cheer
for within each person
who's left a poem
it's their soul speaking
loud and clear
